Historical Note of Alpha Chi Sigma

Alpha Chi Sigma is a professional fraternity for students in the chemical sciences. Beta Chapter founded in 1904 is one of 50 collegiate chapters throughout the country. Its members, both men and women, have included 13 Nobel Laureates, 49 Presidents of the American Chemical Society, and 19 presidents of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers AIChE

The purposes of Alpha Chi Sigma are reflected in the three Objects of the Fraternity. These are: 1. To bind its members with a tie of true and lasting friendship. 2. To strive for the advancement of chemistry both as a science and as a profession. 3. To aid its members by every honorable means in the attainment of their ambitions as chemists throughout their mortal lives. Following the original concept for a fraternity as an academic organization, Alpha Chi Sigma is the only Professional Chemistry Fraternity. Over 100 years old with over 56,000 members, it brings together men and women pursuing a wide variety of chemistry-related careers.
